About the course

This hands-on degree focuses on linking core ecological knowledge to practical skills in the field. You establish a body of knowledge on the diversity and complexity of the natural world, understand how to collect detailed, rigorous scientific data, and develop skills in some of the key techniques required by ecologists and environmental scientists today. Key skills you learn include Environmental Impact Assessment and Geographical Information Systems, as well as skills in research, analysis and problem-solving essential for both your degree programme and future employment. Subsidised modules in scuba dive training (PADI Advanced) and residential field trips - some abroad - are just some of the options available to give you relevant learning experiences in Ecology and Environment.

The University has excellent links with the fishing industry and with world-class research facilities, such as The Deep – the world's only submarium. Hull itself is located in an ecologically diverse part of the country, with dynamic river systems, the North York Moors, flood plains, and the North Sea all within easy reach. You have the chance to develop in-demand research skills using some of the latest equipment and technologies such as genomic analysis and bioinformatics, while our links with local, national and international environmental organisations offer you the chance to gain hands-on experience. The option of an integrated foundation year offers the perfect way into this subject for those without a strong enough academic background or experience for direct entry to the full BSc.
